    Last, those were Assmann 40's SS buckles from Marc Verstraete's former collection.
    There you can see various preserved conditions. Maybe a better indicator since Marc, instead of myself, was buying anything available when I was mostly interested by premium pieces.

    That one is the same Type (Type 2 following my own codification) as the previous one. Note also serial number higher than the two Type 1 shown in this thread.

    This buckle, from my former collection, was sold few months ago to Harry K. in the Netherlands

    This one is a Type 2 but still an Assmann made in 1940. Serial on the tag is of course higher in number.
    This buckle, from my former collection, is also available for sale

    Now you can see what you were looking for. By the way this buckle, from my former collection, is still available for sale.

    Indeed. The serial number on the tag is also matching this series/Type of buckle (Type 1 following my own codification)

    The SS contract was to be allowed to manufacture the SS buckle when the RZM tag was like a tax stamp to be paid to the RZM when the buckle was sold. Each RZM item had to pay tax when sold. When sold to the end user tag was then removed (probably at RZM store level) and sent to the RZM.

    Here is my original aluminum Assmann SS buckle, mint unissued with RZM tag for comparison. Hopefully this may help with coding questions or concerns, as this one is 100% legit.

    I would love to see other examples with paper tags. I have owned HJ buckles with paper tags (fragile paper ones that have been glued, not heavier paper with a staple). Same silver finish but with storage wear.

    The wear on the catch is mechanical wear from being on a belt. Always shows up on the outer edge of the catch first. I could present a number of both unissued Luftwaffe tropical buckles with storage wear, and lightly worn tropical buckles with mechanical catch wear and the same wear to the highlights on the front.

    There is already concerns regarding the tag not matching (SS and RZM). I call that a warning bell.

    To me the buckle is not unissued and has been worn. So, why a paper tag? And while both may be Assmann codes, why the difference?
